Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep and cook the chicken

  • Cut a small corner from the chicken packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper and the fajita spice blend.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 teaspoons [1 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, stirring once or twice, until lightly browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
While the chicken cooks, prepare the salsa.

2

Make the sweet pepper–tomato salsa

  • Remove the stems and seeds from the sweet mini peppers; thinly slice the peppers crosswise into rings.
  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure ¼ cup [½ cup].
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro; set aside half for garnish.
In a medium bowl, stir together the peppers, onion, tomatoes, Aleppo-lime vinaigrette base, half the cilantro, and 2 to 3 teaspoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you heat the tortillas.

3

Warm the tortillas

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the tortillas, turning once, until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.

Serve

Set out the tortillas, chicken, salsa, yogurt, and remaining cilantro and invite everyone to assemble their own fajitas.
